State Street Global Exchange released the results of the State Street Investor Confidence Index® (ICI) for March 2017.
Towards the end of 2016, as a result of the US elections, emerging-market investor uncertainty increased. As we approach the end of the first quarter of 2017, it’s time to take a look at developments in emerging markets and what investors should bear in mind for the months to come.
External financing conditions in emerging economies remain highly volatile, as foreign investors repeatedly reassess the attractiveness of emerging market assets in light of ever-changing expectations about the path for interest rates in the U.S. and other advanced economies.
In reaction to today’s US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, Lee Ferridge, head of multi-asset strategy for North America at State Street Global Markets, and Antoine Lesné, EMEA head of ETF strategy at SPDR ETFs, part of State Street Global Advisors, offer their views.
